Kumari Devi, Living Goddess of Nepal

One of the things I looked forward to in Nepal was to visit the house of Kumari Devi, the Living Goddess of Nepal. Choosing a pre-pubescent young girl as a living goddess is an old tradition in Nepal. When she reaches her first menstruation her divinity and reign ends, and the search for her successor begins.

It says it all: This is the House of the Living Goddess, Kumari.


  1. Oh dear Roger,
    You left Singapore without saying goodbye. Take care. And don't forget to seek my sister who is a belly-dancer at Ahmet's Cafe in central Cairo.

  2. Thanks for the info. Your sister is very beautiful. Her belly-dancing is fantastic. Can I marry her? Tell her I'm still fit though I'm an orang tua!
